Testy McTestington

In a bid to relieve the boredom of doing more bloody edging, and because I received the round crystals this morning, I thought I would test out a few ways of applying them.

I think I'm going to go for the top version, it looks neater and more, I dunno, right somehow. The bottom version looks a bit scrappy. That could be my lack of beading skills of course, rather than a fundamental flaw in the beading method.



This is also a useful exercise in trying to work out what will fit where on the actual bra & belt.

And back to the edging...

They're beautiful!

I wish we all lived closer, so we could have a sewing circle. I have a pile of things to tailor/create and lack motivation.

That would be awesome.

I guess this is the best we can get- an online sewing circle. I get so much inspiration from parasitegirl and mekyria posting about their sewing projects. And diva_c's fettling!

I really like the top one too, though I confess because I don't sew, I've got no idea what the difference between the two is.

OK I admit the summer holidays are giving me brainache.

The top one seems to be tighter and cleaner somehow.

Yeah, the top one looks great! The other one would work too, but I think the top one is the cleanest like Nikki said.

I also prefer the top one, but they both look lovely and sparkly! Look forward to seeing the finished article.
I'm about to start the painfully boring sequin, beads, sequin routine to the slits and hem of a circle skirt...so I'll be feeling your pain there.
